the program. i would like to introduce the head of the effort. former u.s. congressman, former u.s. attorney for arkansas, and former minister of the u.s. drug enforcement agency -- connell: an extraordinary set of statements just made from washington. among other things, the nra would like to arm every school in the nation. that is what he just said. armed guards, armed police officers, as he put it, every single school in the united states following the shootings and newtown, connecticut. he said the only thing that will stop a bad guy with a gun, is a good guy with a gun. the message that it sends, as he put it, schools are now the safest place to inflict the maximum amount of mayhem. we have seen statements to match it coming out of washington. that may have been the most dramatic political statement that you will see, or have seen this week. we saw a couple other things during that statement. while we were watching, we saw one protester come in and hold up a sign. while peer had to stop and then he eventually continued. >> the predators of the world know it and exploited. that must chan
. they keep coming to the same conclusion. there is about 6% of u.s. adolescents that are clinically depressed. that's not just sad. it's in a deep state that need help of one type or another. whether it's counseling or drugs or whatever. they need some help. they're relatively easy to identify. and you can do it in a simple screening process. for very little money. we could have every kid when you get your high school physical, you also have to get checked out, or periodically before graduation. because the thing is, most depressives, kids want to -- they want help. and they will tell adults. usually the two adults they will not tell are their mom and their dad. and that's actually part of the screening protocol is that parents can't be in the room, because they will usually tell a teacher or a counselor or a family doctor. they will tell an adult, but they hide it from their parents because they're embarrassed, ashamed, all sorts of different reasons. so the parents are often blind to it because the child is sort of blocking their view. so parents have difficulty. but yeah, we can do so much
business correspondent for "u.s. news & world report." i want to ask you about the tax increase if there is no deal and tax rates rise, when would workers begin to see that reflekr reflected in their paychecks? when does the pain start? >> this is not one tax hike. this is about nine different sets of taxes. and the one that would go up right away is the payroll tax. that was cut temporarily in 2 009, cut by two percentage points and will go back up by two percentage points and that would come out of workers' paychecks right off the bat. it would add up to something like $60, $70 a month for the typical worker. we hear about all the tax rates that are going up, that actually wouldn't involve money that is in people's pockets until they actually pay their taxes or do their tax returns the following year. because that's when they would have to calculate the amount they owe and whether they paid enough taxes in 2013. so the good and bad news about that is that is not going to affect people right away, but that also means they can put that one off for a long time and we could go --
still has money and won't rule out going back to the u.s. matt guttmann, abc news, guatemala city. >>> a federal judge in new york says a suit by roman catholics against the new health care law can go forward. the archdiocese of new york and two other groups are suing over the requirement that they must provide insurance coverage for birth control. the government had asked for that suit to be thrown out. the requirement does not take effect until just over a year from now. so the bottom line is, look, the health care law will come into effect. the government says, look, we're going to make some exemptions for religious folks don't want to provide birth control because of their religious reason. they're saying look, this lawsuit is premature we are not yet done defining exemptions give us time. but the -- you know, some of the church groups are saying, wait a minute, no. we don't trust that word. want to take action now. in new york, the biggest archdiocese says this will cost $200 million a year if it goes through. so, again, what the exemptions are not yet clear. but the chump gr

. >> this isn't even the first time that a u.s. president has asked for gun laws on assault rifles and those gun clips. what is different this first time around? and will that make a difference? >> i think the difference here is that children were involved. i don't care where you live, who you are, whether you're a gun enthusiast or not. you look at this and say we've got to find a way to prevent this from happening. you know, the nra is saying you need trained security people to protect these schools. other people are saying, no, we need no more guns. is it realistic to think we can eliminate all guns? probably not. you know something? i think we're at a tipping point now where people are saying we need new laws. we need something. something to prevent this. and my feeling is, in the end, they're going to go after these assault weapons and high-capacity clips so that somebody can't go in with a gun that can fire large amounts of ammunition. i think probably that's an area that everybody -- most people will agree with now and then we can move on to the harder questions later. >> sounds like a pl

an antique weapon across the border. this is a weapon he declared. >> former u.s. ambassador is outraged mexico is playing politics with this. >> it has to do with the mexican government plaming the united states for part of the drug cartel problem. their view is it's all of these american firearms flooding mexico illegally. i swear they have been sympathetic to that charge through the years. that is one of the motives of the fast and furious operations. the only conclusion i think you can draw is if the mexican government is using this particular case to make a larger point. that is when you have to apply political pressure much higher levels. mexico can do a lot of things easy. it is christmas, generosity. they can say it's a farewell president to hillary clinton. they can say whatever they want. the important thing is to get it out and later to deal with the mexican government and make it absolutely clear this conduct by them is unacceptable to americans. >> meanwhile lawmakers are calling for a national travel boycott to mexico until hammar is home. >>> the time 18 after the hour. co
